Very nice natural area with trails throughout. Observation tower to climb and view the surrounding terrain and wildlife. Nice Kayak Launch and good water ways to paddle. And best of all, there is no admission.

I go here by myself often. Has nice ocean views and benches sprinkled throughout the route. The overlook watch tower is wonderful. Bring bug spray though, the back half of the trail has a lot of mosquitos.

This place is excellent. Didn't expect to come to the beach and want to go to such a place. It was an excellent walk. Wildlife is surrounding you the entire time. Great way to spend a few hours. Loved the observation tower (the view was spectacular).

We went on a beautiful day in March. There are lots of cool trails to walk ... we really enjoyed our day around the park. There is a great tower that you can look over the bridge going into Tampa.

Looks like the just re-paved some of the walking/biking trails. The place looks great. You even have raised wooden walkways and paths to Tampa Bay. Many miles of trails. Tons of area to kayak and easy drop points.

We enjoyed walking the trails! Some shade, sights of the Skyway/Sunshine Bridge, sea birds, house that sits on the Preserve that we found very interesting! Also a tower you can climb and see for quite a distance!

We have kayaked, walked, and bicycled this trail. We love it. I would rate it best for kayaking and walking; almost too crowded for bicycling.
